The Kinesiology Concentration in the Exercise Science major will prepare students for the application of the Exercise Science degree in personal, community and corporate leisure, fitness and wellness industries, sports team applications and coaching, personal business, or outdoor recreation settings. A minor will be required which will allow students to tailor their degree to their professional goals. This major integrates the theories and practicalities of exercise science in preparing graduates for a career in this field. This is achieved through an understanding of the science of human movement and physiology, coupled with essential hands-on experiences that culminate in an internship in a health/fitness facility.
